When I was a kid, we lived next door to an old man that sharpened saws. When he had a bent saw he would take it to a pond on a still day when the water was like glass. He sould slap the water as hard as he could with the saw. He always came back with a straight saw. I know this sounds like an old wives tale but it sure works.

With the teeth off the edge of a table, tap the kink from the “hill” side with a ball peen hammer. You’ll be able to work it out fairly quickly. If you hit the teeth with the hammer, it will be off to the guy lilredweldingrod mentioned to slap it on a choppy lake to put the set back in them.

With the proper tools a bent saw blade can be fixed or you can send it out to have it straightened and resharpened. Here is a link to one of the best hand saw sharpening services out there.
